Adore You

Good morning again.
This time I'm posting to share a DT card for our new challenge over at Fantasy Stampers.
For our next challenge we would like to see your STAMPED projects on the theme of -

LOVE IS IN THE AIR

Hubby and I aren't especially into Valentines and stuff, so I went with this card that was inspired by a few of the not so overtly Valentine themed challenges out there at the mo.


The choice of colours was influenced by the picture montage at Stampin' Royalty,


the cue words at ATCAS and CASology and the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.
I was drawn to the butterfly image and the red and black colourway in the photo, so I used a butterfly from my STAMPlorations Trendy Butterflies set and a selection of red inks.
To begin with I die cut some post its with the letters using a v old Sizzix Sizzlits set 'Endless Love'. I was only talking to some girls at class on Wednesday about these old dies and thought they would be just the right script for this. I then placed the masks and over stamped with the solid butterfly, 1st and 2nd generation. The black pattered one was created by kissing the clean butterfly stamp onto a textured background from STAMPlorations Mixed Media Grunge set inked with black ink.
After removing the masks of the letters I thought it needed a little more umph, so added plain white die cuts over the top. The YOU was stamped on black and embossed with white EP.

OK, that's it from me, please check out the rest of the DT's inspiration and why not join in, just remember to use a rubber stamp as your focal point!
